It's a comforting idea

I just finished The Awakening, and it was alright, but mostly I just thought this was a beautiful little phrase:

"But the beginning of things, a world especially, is necessarily vague, tangled, chaotic, and exceedingly disturbing. How few of us ever emerge from such beginning! How many of us perish in its tumult!"
